Huntersville-based American Tire Distributors announced an acquisition to expand its Canadian business Monday.
National Tire Distributors, American Tire’s Canadian company and Canada’s largest tire distributor, acquired Pneus Superieurs, a company with three distribution centers in Quebec.
The additional centers will shorten delivery times and increase product selection in Quebec, according to a statement. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
“This move contributes to our business and strengthens our portfolio for delivery,” American Tire CEO Stuart Schuette said in a statement. “Bringing these great teams together allows NTD to provide a best-in-class delivery and service and adds value for our customer, building the most customer-centric distribution team the industry has ever seen.”
